Question about Dell Studio 15 Laptop

1 Answer

Since yesterday, the picture on my laptop has been distorted and I can't figure it out. Looks like the contrast is off. Can't find how to adjust it and I tried to calibrate without any luck. I turned it off and that helped a lot but today it is right back to where it was. My computer is only a couple of months old.

Hi. Restart your system and press F2 key when you see the Dell Screen. You can adjust the Screen brightness or contrast from there. See if that'll help!!!

How to adjust the color on a HP Officejet 4635 Printer? The is much darker and "off" color from the original picture.


Colour control is not a function of the printer. You need to adjust your PC/laptop display to show a more realistic image by sourcing some test patterns, see link:

When your screen is properly set up, open the picture you want to print and see what it looks like. Use a suitable photo editor to adjust brightness, contrast etc. and then try printing again.

The picture is so dark can't make out figures


It sounds that the back-light section has some fault with your TV. Otherwise, 30% brightness, 60 to 65% contrast, and 20 to 30% color settings should give you perfect picture.

I don't understand anything about changing the display settings on my Acer p215h monitor I push the buttons but can't figure out what to do


umm...usually if it is a desk top there will be buttons either on the side, front or back or even the top, one looks like a sun and another looks like a square thats normally half white and half black. they are your brightness and contrast...push either end of the buttons to adjust more bright or less bright, more contrast or less contrast.

My Tv started shown double image yesterday. What


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

We have an Acer Travelmate 4200 and the screen is too dark how do you brighten the screen??


Most laptops have a function key (F1-12) with a picture that looks like a sun. Press and hold the FN button and the appropriate Function key. You should get a "slider" to adjust the contrast and brightness..

Some laptops also come with a program to make other display adjustments. Look at the Control Panel to see if you have one of those on your list. If not, check the "Display" application on the Control Panel, and under "Settings" see if you can adjust contrast or brightness that way.
